Address:12619 SE 20th Pl

Project Type

Building Category:Elementary Schools
Work Type:New

Project Description:

The project consisted of the demolition of the old building and replacing it with a new, two-story 63,000 square foot structure. The current 5,000 square foot Early Childcare complex remained, but received improvements to increase functionality as well as esthetically tie the structure to the new school design. The key goals of the project were to create a sense of community for students, utilize environmentally sensitive principles, and take advantage of the remarkable views from this hilltop site. The project included classrooms, gymnasium and multi-purpose room, stage, music rooms and art/science project rooms. The 1000 square foot classrooms include interactive white boards and LCD projectors, and the school is hard wired for both data and full wireless capability as well. A key element of the design was the central gallery space which is the sunlit core of the building, connecting all parts of the school and acting as a mixing chamber supporting the sense of community throughout the school. The gable end of the gallery forms the front door, providing a clear, identifiable entrance that is both prominent and friendly.

Green & Sustainable Features:

The building is oriented to optimize natural daylighting of the classrooms and take advantage of the exceptional views to the west from public areas.
